A Russian motorcyclist was arrested this morning while riding along the Colombo- Katunayake expressway after entering it surreptitiously.

He had entered the expressway at the 18th kilometre post at the Negombo entry point and was arrested by the highway traffic wardens near the 6th kilometre post while on his way to Colombo. The motorcyclist was later handed over to the police.

    true, They have minimum engine capacity limits to ride in highway, more powerful than our small cars.

    By seeing the beautiful new road, he might have get and idea to have a ride!

    Very strange. Were the personnel manning the gates overawed by the skin colour?? Maximum punishment should be meted out to this fellow. Try this in in Russia we will not come alive. Must be made to respect our laws .

    Riding a bike in a highway can not and should not be considered as a crime. All other countries with highways allow bikers and they are also exempted of toll. Sri Lanka should obtain this policy.

    Gamini Monday, 02 December 2013 07:08 AM

    absolutely true.

    Ralahami Monday, 02 December 2013 07:16 AM

    No the problem is that the toll gates are only at the end of the expressway and motorists are free to enter. Although there are designated police officers at the entrance the time this happened they would've either been away for breakfast or else the motorcyclist would have hidden himself behind another larger vehicle

    Get a life man - maximum punishment - in our country where rapists, drug dealers and murderers get off scot free and even sit in parliament you want maximum punishment for a crazy guy that rode a motorbike on a the highway. So Idiotic - where have you been?

    ANTON Monday, 02 December 2013 04:37 PM

    I THINK NOT THE RUSSIAN BUT THE MAN WHO ARRESTED HIM WILL BE PUNISHED FIRST.

    Haka Haka Tuesday, 03 December 2013 03:27 AM

    So true mate.

    Sampath Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:56 AM

    In Russia bikers are allowed to ride in highways as in other European countries.
    Interesting if there are signs to show that bikers are not alowed to enter highways in Sri Lanka. First you need to how he entered and why he was not stopped, if it is prohibited beofre jumping in to conclusions.

    We seems to be very happy that we let three Russians alive....? Two of them were 'taken care of' in the worst a woman would be a put through, and the third one with a fine for riding along the expressway.

    Hiran Monday, 02 December 2013 08:16 AM

    Truth Hurts, please don't lie, as it gives wrong info to the readers! Many countries that I know UK, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Singapore etc. charge toll on bikers too, but a different price.

    Aja Monday, 02 December 2013 08:23 AM

    Toll gates are not at the starting point so this confusing ...i guess

    Suq Madique Tuesday, 03 December 2013 04:19 AM

    Where were the cops? They should be the ones to blame.

    andarademaalk Monday, 02 December 2013 08:26 AM

    It they allow bikes to go on the highway there will be more accidents considering the way our people ride. In fact there should be a separate cycle lane in order to allow them to ride on a highway. Good that it is not allowed.

    Dee Monday, 02 December 2013 08:31 AM

    Dont compare bikes in SL with bikes which are run on highways in other countries.

    ase Tuesday, 03 December 2013 04:31 AM
